The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has come at a time when data protection is at the forefront of businesses minds. Computing IT Leaders’ Forum is a half-day conference for senior IT professionals from end-user, private sector organisations.
How do businesses prepare for the GDPR? What data management strategies are the most effective when ensuring compliance? How do you educate your staff in the best security measures? Which data can you safely shed to exclude liability? These and many more questions will be answered.
The GDPR is viewed by most businesses as tremendously onerous, with the level of fines attached to breaches seen as excessive and having the ability to potentially bankrupt business. The responsibility for this is seen by most as lying predominantly with IT professionals, despite the fact security is an issue that affects every department in the company. All of this, combined with the inevitable bureaucracy and inconvenience involved ensures that when it comes to data, businesses must now put the rights of their customers above all else.
